#Cubs and Montgomery face Giants

Mike Montgomery makes his third start for the Cubs on Thursday night in the first of four games against the Giants. Chris Coghlan is back, and starting in left field. It’ll be a familiar face on the mound for San Francisco as Jeff Samardzija gets the start.

The Cubs went 22-6 in August, while the Giants posted their worst month of the season (11-16). When these two teams met at AT&T Park in May, the Giants took two out of three.

Here’s the lineup:

Fowler CF

Bryant 3B

Rizzo 1B

Zobrist 2B

Heyward RF

Russell SS

Coghlan LF

Ross C

Montgomery P

How about the bullpen tonight? Five innings of hitless and scoreless relief, and none of the three hurlers was named Chapman. Let`s find a way to give Aroldis more well deserved rest Friday. Tom Hallion will be behind the plate tomorrow, and he`s not one of my favorites. His strike zone is bizarre. Phil Cuzzi is part of this crew, and you`ll recall we`ve had our issues with him in the past, and we will have to deal with him Sunday. Did I mention this umpiring crew should not be one of the Cubs` fans preferred crews? Why can`t there be more Jeff Nelson`s?
